[intro]

Em/G Em/F#      C/E C/D  C
I've seen love go by my door, it's never been this close before
G                G     D/A D/A
  It's never been so easy or so slow
       Em/G Em/F
I've been shooting in the dark too long,
   C/E C/D C
When something's not right, it's wrong
G             D/F# G      G
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Purple clover, Queen Anne's Lace, crimson hair across your face
You could make me cry if you don't know
I don't remember what I was thinking of,
You might be spoiling me with too much
   love, honey
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Em/G    Em/F#    C/E|- C/D    C     G    G    D/A    D/A
[instrumental]
Em/G    Em/F     C/E|- C/D    C     G    D/F#   G    G
[instrumental]

There are dragon clouds so high above,
I have only known careless love
It always hit me from below
But this time 'round it's more correct,
It's right on target and so direct
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

D/F# D/F#   G  G
Flowers on the hillside blowing crazy
D/F# D/F#       G  G
  Crickets talking back and forth in rhyme
A7         A7sus4(6)        A7    A7
Blue river running slow and lazy
Am7             Am7
I could stay with you forever,
D/F# D/F# D/F# D/F# D/F# D/F#
And never realize the time

But situations have ended sad, relationships have all been bad
Mine have been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud's
But there's no way
I can compare all them scenes with this affair, honey
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Oh, you're gonna make me wonder what I'm doing
Staying far behind without you
You're gonna make me wonder what I'm saying
You're gonna make me give myself a good talking to

I will I look for you in Honolulu, San Francisco, Ashtabula
You're gonna have to leave me now, I know
But I'll see you in the skies above,
In the tall grass and the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
You're gonna make me lonesome
